Re: A curious proposal

Does APL2 use the same glyphs as the rest of the world? Or is it still that mystical runic symbolism which invokes loki every time you attempt to write a program in it o.0 [Sorry for replying so late - was abroad for some time] Yes, APL still uses these characters - with good reasons (see Iverson, ...

Re: Black Lego O2 Case

Indeed, very cool, It's like what a Danish Frank LLoyd Wright would do if employed by 1920's SGI :P How hot is it in there? o.0. Maybe some 'smooth' lego tops to remove visible the trademark lego connectors running across the top surface ... or is that the point? To make it obviously lego-like. Cong...

Re: How can Apple reclaim its dominance over PC-based workstations?

I think there is a typo in the title of this thread. 'Apple', 'Workstation' and 'Dominance' are used the same sentence. o.0 When did Apple dominate the workstation market? I must have missed that :shock:. Last time apple had dominance over x86, MIPS was in charge with the software that mattered :D ....

Re: How frequently you use your SGI (in 2017)?

My Irix boxen have sadly been sat dormant for the last 4 years :(. My use for them ran out back in 2009 ish :( :(. The defib is out on my VW's (540/320), unfortunately not a quick revival given current 'life shite' going on, o.0 ... as sure as I am that portions of the ram will prematurely die... re...

Re: WTB Altix XE340 barebones with Bezell (US)

Altix XE are nothing more than rebadged Supermicro. My google-fu suggests the equivalence is the Supermicro 808-12, and comes in two flavours depending if you need infiniband or not. It's probably easier to get one of these and an 'sgi' bezel :).

Re: Let's check your depth buffer precision!

I have Maya 6.5 and a 540 that I have been wanting to setup so might do this sometime this weekend. I can do one better! write an OpenGL app to exploit this directly! You'll also find that if you move the object closer to the far clipping plane it will get a lot worse. Z-Fighting is undefined behavi...

Re: A curious proposal

Why Excel for tables? Word would be sufficient no? WTF? Her university asked her to use Latek to write the final report. What the is the meaning of Excel in this? The only good point is: she can now quote a new tool in her CV's abilities! What is Latek? Do you mean LaTeX? Since mathematical symbols...

Re: A curious proposal

we are already talking about what in 80s was simple impossible: concurrency and parallelism! The CM-5 (among others) disgrees with this. Indeed they tried to invent the Transputer with its own Occam language. They failed... The transputer was invented o.0 as well as learning Latek (why not Word?) t...

Re: WTB 1600sw adapter for Sgi 320 and/or Fuel

Oh, interesting, I just saw your pictures in the other thread. You are definitely missing the header. I did not even realize the header was an option. On the other hand, you got dual CPU, 1GB RAM, and the VRM, so pretty lucky on the whole. Yep, I wonder how hard to find those headers are... Dang ne...
